You're being waay too over-sensitive - why would people automatically assume that you were in prison just because you had been arrested? They wouldn't.

Maximillien was not saying you had been convicted, he was saying it was not relevant to what else he had to say, he just didn't take care not to use "that" word.

You're getting some good advice here, stick with it but stop over-reacting - the internet can be a harsh place, but freelancing can be harsher. Get used to it.

And look "Expunge" means "to obliterate completely" so either the potential criminal record no longer exists or you are using the wrong term. If it no longer exists then it cannnot crop up in a background check - or at least not the sort of background check that non-government agencies can run Laugh | :laugh:

I think @Nelek has the right idea - do a check on yourself to see what might crop up.
